The Brooklyn Park Broncos (3-5) rallied from a 6-0 first-half deficit to post a 25-6 victory over winless Maryland City (0-7) in county 115-pound football.

Dominic Harris (9-for-47 rushing) got the Broncos going with a short touchdown run and later caught a touchdown pass from quarterback Cory Wright (4-for-6, 41 yards passing).

Wright also ran back an interception 25 yards for a score, and Antoine Chambers (10-for-40 rushing) scored the other Broncos touchdown from 20 yards. The Broncos had just 17 yards total offense in the first half.

Phil Mullinix scored the only Maryland City touchdown and had 55 yards rushing against a tough Broncos defense. Brandon Holland led the Broncos with seven tackles, and Tim Wilburn, Tony Grooms and John Poe each had four tackles.

* 95 pounds -- The Severna Park Green Hornets downed the visiting Crofton Cardinals, 14-6.

The Hornet offense rushed for 220 yards behind the blocking of Charlie and Jeremy Winkle, Ryan McGarry, Jeff Copithorn and Zack Walters.

The Green Hornets opened the scoring on their first possession with a 2-yard plunge by running back David Rausch. Jay Walker added the extra point.

In the third quarter, the Hornets converted a fourth-and-15 at the Cardinals' 30 when quarterback Mike Cosper threw a 20-yard strike to Drew Pharr.

Medhi Nematolahi finished the drive with a 10-yard run and Chris Odom kicked the extra point for a 14-0 lead.

Crofton scored late fourth-quarter to narrow the margin.

Anchoring the Hornets' defense were Kevin Dunn, Joey Cogan and Jeremy Tate, along with linebackers Odom, Nematolahi, Cosper and Jon Kral.

* 140 pounds -- Brad Emge's third touchdown of the game, and second in overtime, gave the defending county champion Pasadena Chargers (6-1) a 20-14 double-overtime victory at Fort Meade (2-5) Saturday.

It was the Chargers' second straight double-overtime victory, coming on the heels of a 19-13 victory last week over the Anne Arundel Gridiron Rebels.

Emge (eight carries for 58 yards) scored both times he touched the ball in overtime. His first touchdown came from 2 yards after an 8-yard burst by Brian Kingsbury (9 carries for 49 yards), and he tied the first overtime at 14.

Fort Meade's Damon Butler (17 carries, 99 yards) had scored from 8 yards on the first possession in overtime.

Neither team made the conversion and the game went into a second overtime. Kevin Moore's second interception stopped Fort Meade on fourth down, and Emge wasted no time --ing 10 yards to victory on first down.

The host Cougars held an 8-0 halftime lead on a second-period 3-yard dive by Butler and Earl Curran's two-point conversion.

Chargers quarterback Mike Evans, who was sacked five times for losses of 32 yards, hit Emge with a short pass early in the third period for a 49-yard score. Chad Duncan tied it with the conversion.

Dan Harrison, Mike Wilson, Emge, Moore and Duncan sparkled on defense for the Chargers.

* 75 pounds -- The Buccaneers B team ran only three plays in the first half before scoring two touchdowns in the second half and defeating the Pasadena Chargers, 13-0.

Chris Hudson scored for the Bucs in the third quarter with a 4-yard run. Mike Guino then broke loose for a 64-yard touchdown, and Hudson added the extra point for the final margin.

Steve Hayes paced the Bucs' defense with seven tackles, followed by Andrew Sears (three tackles, one interception), Chris Guino, Mike Guino, Alex Schmidt, Russ Nichols, Justin Scalio, Corey Stewart, Jonathan Grau, Freddy Sutherland and Billy Scollian.

The Buccaneers offense was led by the blocking of Andrew Ward, Doug Baer, Justin Jarmer, Ryne Curry, and Steve Yaruta.

The Division I race is a close one with six teams, including the Blast (3-2-3) and the Cougars (2-2-4), still in contention for the championship.

Mike Beaver got the Cougars on the board first in the first half, but Crofton's Ben Baxter countered on an assist from Jim Courtney. Tom Gorman, assisted by Ben Dill put the Cougers up 2-1, but Matt Hunter tied it again on another pass from Courtney.

Beaver went into goal in the second half and frustrated the Blast, making four saves.

First-half goalkeeper Carlo Biondi made three stops for Cape St. Claire, and Blast goalie Kevin Haller smothered two breakaways.
